Yachts transportation

Shipping a sailing boat demand special supplies as well as careful arrangements. A sailing boat is an extremely delicate as well as costly load. Any damages (which can be pretty easy to obtain) could really diminish the yacht’s financial worth. That’s why it is smart to search for help from skilled hauler to transport a sailing boat – his knowledge and skills will be your insurance that transported boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nevertheless regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to ship a yacht, you still need to make some preparations personally. Firstly, check the precise dimensions of your yacht. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it is always best to measure the boat yourself, because even small differences in size can make shipping more demanding and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while looking for a transport provider for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht is measured between the bow and the transom. The yacht length should not contain any elements that are located outside of the boat, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the yacht.


Remember that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the boat does not only affect the security of the shipment but also its price. More than that, it can also influence the time the shipping can occur – because in some countries the loads beyond a certain length are not permitted to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a yacht is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you decide to hire a hauler, you don’t need to worry about securing it properly – the hauler will take care of that. While looking for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to demand a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The cost of yacht transportation mostly depends on the size of the yacht as well as how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions can cause the boat to damage. If your boat may be shipped in varying weather conditions, the transport provider will have to shield it against those conditions, and it could alter the price of the transportation.
